Downloading in Firefox, make sure you select the Download (not the Stream) link, right click, and select "Save link as" to save the file, otherwise Firefox will try to play it.

If you are not getting the whole file, the connection is probably getting closed before it is done. This could happen if you have a slow internet connection or the server or network is very busy, or a hundred other reasons. Notice that there should be links that say HTTP and FTP at the bottom of the Download box. Firefox would normally use HTTP, but you might have better luck using FTP (not sure if Firefox has a built in ftp client though).

Steve, you are a GENIUS... or at least more competent with internet dealings than I am. Thank you very much.
